Creative writing workshop S6 Higher / Adv. Higher / A-Level English – FREE


In this playful and intensive workshop, we’ll begin with a favourite “loosening-up” exercise to get us over our blank page anxieties and in the mood for writing. We’ll talk about how creative inspiration often arises when two apparently different things suddenly come together, and we’ll use the objects we’ve brought along to help us in a “two things” writing game. We’ll also talk about how constraints and “given material” can be surprisingly liberating – and we’ll prove it to ourselves with a writing challenge involving the exhibits from the Human Race exhibition. Everyone should bring an object (preferably a small one!) that reminds them strongly of something else (e.g. a person, a place, an event). The object and its personal connection need to be something you’re comfortable sharing with the group.
